#6 In latin1 mode, umlauts (ü) entered via keybord show up wron



- Comparing a file under version control with its base version, encoding is latin1
- File's encoding is detected correctly
- Entering a non-ASCII character via keyboard (e.g., ü) shows its UTF-8 translation inserted into the file
- Pasting a non-ASCII character via clipboard exhibits the same behavior

    I've been unable to reproduce this problem. Could you also save the result of attempting to paste in a "ü" character and attach it to this issue? In the Preference dialog, what values do you have in the "Regional Settings" tab? Also, what is the default encoding used by your computer?

    To address your questions:
    - I have added the results of entering the string äöüÄÖÜß, one character per line, in a separate file.
    - I have tried several combinations for the "encoding" setting, all with the same result. I can reproduce the problem with "latin_1" as the only available encoding.
    - The default locale is German (Germany). Windows 7, x64.

    This should now be fixed in the development version if you care to test it.

    A first test in Debian shows that the behaviour has been corrected in the dev version. Thank you. Will there be an installation package available for Windows soon?

    I have uploaded a test package for Windows with the patch here:


    An official release should be available soon (after localisation updated are complete).
